1. Giant cannibal babies (Drakengard)
We live in a world where a Drakengard series spin-off, Nier, is better known than the main series itself. For those who haven't played the original Drakengard, i.e. almost everyone, it follows the reluctant pact made between a man and a dragon. This Square Enix game had a little bit of everything: on-foot skirmishes as a one-man army, aerial combat sequences as your dragon soars through the air, and a plethora of dramatic cutscenes. None of it was scary. Through a multitude of twists and turns, the plot could wind up at one of five endings. But only one of them was this…frightening. This twisted.
We'll spare you the lore, because we'd rather not know. In this particular ending, a grisly scene unfolds--one so mortifying, it's almost humorous, before it sets in as officially FRACKING scary. Gigantic, gurgling babies called Grotesqueries descend from the heavens. People cower in fear as almighty toddlers levitate through the sky. Severely unnerving melodies sets the score, intercut with babies' gooing and gaing. A woman, driven mad at such a sight, offers herself as "the greatest of feasts." And with that, the gigantic babies descend upon and devour her, squealing in delight. W. T. F.
